Property Description

Spectacular views over Loch Bracadale and the hills beyond are to be enjoyed from this beautifully presented and fully re-developed former crofter’s cottage, standing in a lovely position in the highland hamlet of Fiskavaig. This peaceful setting is an ideal base to enjoy the many glorious walks to be found on Skye - Talisker Bay, Glen Brittle and the Cuillin are within easy reach and there are direct walks from the cottage itself. Alternatively, guests can simply curl up and relax in this cosy hideaway, feeling the magic of Skye and enjoying the sheer tranquillity, whilst soaking up the panoramic views. On the island, take full advantage of some of Scotland’s finest restaurants, many offering unrivalled views. Shop 5 miles. Nearest pub/hotel 2 miles.

Living room with open fire and wooden floor. Well-equipped kitchen/dining area. Two double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room. Seperate bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A fantastic property would definitely go back to. All fixtures and fittings to a high standard. Fantastic ’Welcome Book’ with lots of information. Suggested walks were excellent. The weather was varied, gales, rain, even hail but just added to the feel of the place if you ask me. You want sun? Go to the Med. You want ’weather’? Go to Scotland. A great cottage to come ’home’ to after a days walking. I will be back! Sept 2011.
  2. Very comfortable, warm, excellent facilities, quiet will return again. A good holiday despite very poor weather (according to local residents unseasonal). Drovers Rest is well maintained and good value for money. May 2011.
  3. The kitchen was incredibly well equipped; I enjoyed baking bread, scones and oatcakes while I was there. Everything was very clean too. Feb 2011.
  4. Superb modern and comfortable cottage, fabulous views and every detail thought of, including kitchen equipment, TV and hi-fi and visitors’ information. Excellent quality furnishings throughout. Oct 2010.
  5. The situation was magnificent and the standard of furnishing and equipment was excellent. Oct 2010.
  6. Nice location, you will find this either fairly secluded or very secluded depending on where you are from and what you are used to. Oct 2010.
  7. Very clean and tidy and fully equipped, everything was of a high standard. Would definitely return. Sept 2010.

  13. A particularly well-equipped kitchen. Sept 2009.
